Classic American bar & restaurant in downtown Austin, TX. Starting at 7 am daily, you can stroll up to the counter window for a thick slice of sweet or savory toast or our signature cinnamon roll along with a cup of coffee (or even a pack of smokes, if you are so inclined). Then, meander back to the spacious patio nestled beneath massive pecan trees on the banks of Shoal Creek. When midday hits, park your bike in front of the shop at the custom metal bike stand, and come inside for a selection of seasonal salads and classics such as our steak sandwich, meatball sub and sloppy joe. For heartier fare at night, consider daily Blue Plate specials such as BBQ chicken, red beans and rice and chicken pot pie – or go for our house specialty twice-baked potato or a massive steak served in a cast-iron skillet with a whiskey on the side. Our housemade old-school desserts, including strawberry cake, banana pudding and pineapple upside-down cake, hit the spot any time of day.
